I’m not feeling this beat at all, it’s too lightweight dubstep with twinkles of house. And while I’m all for dude fucking with his style and voice the singing parts just sound like he’s doing Prince karaoke. I’m not trying to dip my toes in that soulfoul house pool. Not every idea is a good one.
I have been collecting local Bay Area records for a long time now and this is the first Soul mix i’ve made. I’ve also helped to put out two Bay Area Funk compilations on Ubiquity records as well. Figured I share some of my Soul with the Funk i’ve already given you. These bands hail from SF, Oakland, Stockton, Richmond, Vallejo, Monterey, Fresno, and East Palo Alto. Enjoy a taste of the Bay Area Soul music scene. Enjoy!

I didn’t realize this was on soundcloud but yeah you should listen, Justin is an alright human.
This makes me sick… Last night the homie Ghost8800 was killed… No details yet, but whatever happened, it’s wack. There’s nothing sadder than wasted talent… The other day Ghost sent me a bunch of new music, and here’s my favorite from the ZIP file he sent over, featuring Gasss. Ghost8800 was a talented rapper & producer, and more than that, he was a good dude. He’ll definitely be missed. RIP homie.

You ever hear of Burzum? Is that shit nice to your ears or fuck no?
It’s been a minute since I bothered to listened to any. Yes, I listen to some questionable shit but I can’t get down with Vikernes. Yeah whatever motherfuckers can tell me Burzum is separate from his political views but I’m not with it. It bothers me to the point that I can’t really pay attention to the music he makes. Eugenics and an aversion to “race mixing” is some fucking lunacy from a dude trying to put a spell on you so you can get in touch with magic? I’m good with that nerd shit, leave that shit for metal hobbits who think immigrants are why they can’t get laid.

This mix is streaming only — support the artists!
If you don’t know about Houston Rap Tapes the book is dope but yeah this mix covers a lot of bases. More than your shitty tumblr anyways.
I need another blog like I need a gun shot to the head but this should be an interesting exercise in music/blog parody. If you don’t know about this, http://alltherecords.tumblr.com/ then you should check it and hopefully unless you’re an idiot then this tumblr will begin to make sense.
Decided to start a new project so that I have even less time.
The utterance of American societyâs most worrisome word on a football fieldÂ will result in a 15-yard penalty. There will also be various penalties for using the word in locker rooms, cafeterias, an…
i mean, let’s be fucking real: the n-word is only controversial because white people want to say it whenever they want and they don’t have that right.
and nothing motivates america like freedom for white people to do whatever they want.
I feel like I’ve been trying to tell white people this for years now. It’s just such a hard thing for them to grasp, the possibility that they can’t do something.
Can you change the name of the blog to Beer & Rape cause your taste in music is so shitty you have to force people to listen to this bullshit? Or change it to Beer & Phoenix University Online cause you are about as educated as a 3 year old?
You’re too cute sunshine. I know I’ve got a boot on your neck making you click play on my internet but you should rejoice in your new found freedom to live out your anonymous dreams to whatever music you choose rather than all the music I’ve been slamming against the back of your throat sweet cheeks. Rape is something you do, Beer & Rap is something you live. Always remember that my love.
Where do you look to find artists like Lil' St. Loius or Pooh Gutta? Looking for blogs/sources for Midwest Street/Mobb music
Both of those I just came across on livemixtapes or datpiff but if you’re looking for midwest stuff 100grand has plenty although he does post a good amount of bay stuff as well. StLmixtapes isn’t bad but you do have to dig around. Then there are the usual suspects like DGB and trapsntrunks. I’m sure there has to be a midwest version of thizzler or bayareacompass that I don’t know about but that midwest stuff takes a bit of digging around and taking chances on bad cover art.
I’ve been looking for music on the internet for a while now. Things were easier when dudes were filling blogger accounts with rapidshare links. I mined the shit out of Bottomofthemap.blogspot.com. There still are some graveyards out there but goodluck finding one with valid links. Rare to find one that’s been kept up. The mixtape sites made people lazy and who needs to up cds when it’s all free on the mixtape sites anyways? Just kind of sucks because it’s a pain to find music from specific regions now, I don’t know if it’s because shit is hyperlocal or if everything from everywhere is now in the virtual rap promo bin.
